A folk band led by vocalist / ukuleleist Thea Pitogo, based in southern Philippine island Mindanao’s central city Davao.
Truly awesome, with vocals reminiscent of Amy Winehouse, Brittany Howard from “Alabama Shakes,” and powerful, outstanding singing comparable to that of Adele.
Originally, each member was a member of “Jazzistas de Davao,” a musician community organizing live performances at jazz club / seafood restaurant “Bogsers,” which was where they came together.
The six-member band along with her are Ronald Tubio(Gtr), Topee Lim(A.Gtr), Paul Jaso(Ba), Darryl Tingzon(Key), and Jacob Elemento(Dr).
They released their first EP entitled “Love More” in 2014. This EP’s growing popularity brought them onto the Philippine morning show “Maayong Buntag Mindanao” and other medias, definitely creating more fans.
Lastly, here’s Thea Pitogo totally rocking Bob Dylan’s cover.
